Amanda Holden is marking a major milestone! Taking to Instagram on Friday, the Britain's Got Talent star revealed that she and Simon Cowell's fiancée Lauren Silverman had spent the day together, as they toured colleges in America for their children. Pictured alongside them were Amanda's eldest daughter, Lexi, and Lauren's son, Adam, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Andrew Silverman.
Amanda and Lauren have grown extremely close over the years, so it's hardly surprising that they're touring colleges for their teens together. Posting a photo of Lexi and Adam on campus, Amanda wrote: "Their futures are bright…USA Uni…"
While Simon's stepson, Adam Silverman, has always kept out of the spotlight, the 17-year-old has been pictured with both Lauren and Simon at major family events, and he also shares a close bond with his nine-year-old brother, Eric Cowell.
The half-brothers have been spotted holidaying together on several occasions – even wearing matching swim shorts on a family trip to Barbados. The boys also enjoy family picnics and cycling jaunts together.
Last year, Adam was seen posing with Lauren, Simon and Eric for a picture as they hosted an epic Easter party at their Los Angeles mansion. Among the guests was Terri Seymour, who shared the sweet family photo on her Instagram stories.
Despite living in harmony now, Simon Cowell's relationship with his stepson hasn't always been easy. Reports say that when Simon and Lauren first started dating in the early 2010s, Simon was banned from seeing Adam.
It was reported that Adam's father Andrew Silverman made it a stipulation of the divorce from Lauren that her new partner couldn't spend time with her son. Allegedly, Simon was required to pay Andrew $50,000 if he went near Adam, who was seven years old at the time. This is of course no longer the case, as the pair have been spotted together on several occasions.
